Community-Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM)
Somalia's geography makes it prone to drought, famine and floods. Add perpetual violent conflict, and you have a perfect existential storm threatening the human security of families throughout much of Somalia.

SAACID first initiated nutritional activities in Somalia in 1991. In the intervening years, SAACID has struggled with consistent funding to cover baseline nutritional needs; and has had virtually no success in securing funding for durable solutions.

SAACID's historical focus in Somalia has been in the rural districts of Adale and Raghe Elle, as well as Mogadishu City. Of course, we could do much more, but systemic funding constraints have meant we have been limited in what we would have liked to have achieved.
To date, SAACID has cured more than 665,000 Somali children of severe malnutrition.
